We all consider our time to be very important. And that’s one of the reasons we offer the advanced CEREC technology, capable of producing a dental crown in just one day! CEREC is a CAD/CAM technology, computer-assisted design and computer-assisted manufacture system and allows your dentist to make you a customized crown in just one visit.
A crown is a functional covering that dentists put over a damaged or decayed tooth or teeth after the dentist has removed the defective area to strengthen a tooth and improve appearance.
Before, making crowns consisted of multiple visits. First, is the consultation. They take a dental impression to make a mold of your tooth, then send it to the lab to make your crown. After a few weeks your crown is ready, so you would come back to have it placed. But with advancements in dental technology like the CEREC system, you can get all of this done in one day, saving you lots of time.
Another advantage of the CEREC technology is precision. The scanner the dentist uses takes excellent 3D images of your jawline and the computer the dentist uses takes excellent images of the area for the crown. Instead of porcelain, these one day crowns are made with an enamel-like material. No metal is used, making the detection of cavities easier. And because we know that how your teeth look is important to you, they can color your crown in a day to match your existing teeth.
